I travelled to Chicago for my 30th birthday girlfriends getaway. I booked The James through hotwire.com for a great rate of $124/night. The location was perfect...all the shopping and eating we did were within walking distance. We only drove to clubs. Speaking of driving, the parking rate was expensive which is to be expected in downtown Chicago. The service was impeccable from valet, to the front desk, to concierge. Housekeeping did leave the dirty towels we left of the bathroom floor to be removed when our room was cleaned. The beds were extremely comfortable as we found it easy to take naps and difficult to arise from them. We stayed in a standard double room with no view which wasn't a big deal. I don't know how i feel about the flat square sink but it was in sync with the style. The in room bar was very tempting as they provided martini glasses and a shaker. The flat screen was cool as well as the channel selections. We loved the seating nook in the room and found it easy to adjust the room temperature to our liking. I could tell that the walls were thin but we didn't have issues with noise. I definitely recommend staying if you can get the a great rate.
